Seeing Green

The classic appeal of a wreath brings a fresh touch of nature to any room, but it also helps a rustic space step up to a new level of outdoorsiness.

Curb Appeal

Because first impressions are important. Adding a few touches to the front door can help provide an exciting preview of the holiday fun that awaits inside your home.

Winter Wonderland

What it’s really all about is the tree. Make sure that whichever themes you incorporate into your decor are reflected in your tree as well. It’ll tie all of the trimmings together for a seamless statement.

Chestnuts Roasting

And when all else fails, you’ll want to come home and curl up by the warmth of the fire. Stockings should be hung with care for optimal lazy day irresistibility.

Merry & Bright

If you’re hosting this year’s family get-together, you’re probably already plotting the tablescape down to every last detail. The food almost doesn’t matter as long as the presentation is totally on-point. Key word: almost.

Star Power

No, the star doesn't have to sparkle, glow, light up or sing some sort of song. Your house, your rules and that includes your yonder star.

Festive Flannel

If winter had a favorite print, you already know exactly which one it would be. A perfect plaid is an easy way to bring some seasonal cheer to any space.

Comfy Cozy Are We

Embrace the clutter. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, not subtle, after all. You have permission to banish your inner minimalist and embrace the trinket collector deep within.

Good Tidings

It’s not a requirement that you decorate with Instagram in mind, but if the decor fits then just embrace it. You might just end up with the most Insta-worthy backdrop of the season, all thanks to an oversized nutcracker.

The Highest Bough

Garland. More, more, more garland. The lush, leafy accessory is a welcome complement to the already nature-inspired elements of rustic spaces. Bring outdoors indoors and when it doubt, go for the garland.

Breaking Bread

If you’re not swinging from the chandelier, you might be as well try decorating it. Thinking outside the box and trying a few new things with the lighting can guarantee you a few oohs and ahhs from guests.

Gathering Place

Placemats and seating charts will always soothe your inner neat freak. If you’re hoping for some organization, the menu cards and the table decorations can all work together to make for a festive experience.

Stay Awhile

The mudroom doesn’t always get the shine it deserves, but you can always change it up this year. Be warned: you won’t want to get it too muddy if it’s covered in some of your favorite pieces, so it might be rendered out of commission.

Paper Trail

Crafters tend to go crazy around this time of year. On hour 9000 of snowed-in cabin fever, you might find it useful to start a new project and some quirky, fun additions with items you already have around the house.

Small Wonders

It’s not about the size of the tree, it’s about how many lights you can fit onto it and how many presents you can smash under it. This year’s tree trends are testing Santa’s skills, including this tiny trimmed tree.
